, polls close early, 13 electoral votes, 48/47, president obama on top. state of florida, two-point lead for president obama. the state of ohio, most people have seen as the hinge point of this election, president obama's up 51/45. let's look at where the battleground states stand. if you average polls taken on the real clear politics website, of the nine battle ground states romney is only leading in the average of those polls in the two of them, north carolina and florida. the other states, president obama's got a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb t
, virginia, florida, colorado, too close to call. the senate, mostly breaking as expe expected, but the democrats did pick up three new seats. republicans projected to hold the house as well. >> all right. let's get straight to john harwood at the maproom to give us more color on what we're seeing as the most recent poll closings. over to you, john. >> we're almost completely closing the map of coloring in the map of all the states we knew in advance where they were going to faull. the only state where polls have not closed yet is the state of alaska. we're very confident mitt romney is going to win that based on polls before the election. so we're really waiting for those seven battleground states that haven't been filled in yet. again, to reiterate, as we've talked about before, if president obama wins the state of florida this race is over. he's going to be re-elected for a second term. but if mitt romney wins it, he's got to also win north carolina, he's got to win virginia, where it's very close, and he's got to win the state of ohio, which is really a big one hanging out
about florida with 29 electoral votes, and north carolina with 15. you add those together to the base states that mitt romney has. that only makes 235 electoral votes. president obama with 303. that doesn't mean mitt romney cannot win. he's very close in some other states. in colorado, for example, in new hampshire, he -- but he's going to have to make up a lot of ground in a lot of places to get there and the last swing state polls we showed showed six. point lead in ohio. two-point lead for the president in florida. one-point lead in virginia. big hill for mitt romney to claim clitomorrow night. >>> let's go to the finance.yahoo.com poll. the aftermath from sandy. do you think the pace of the recovery will help or hurt either candidate? go to vote at finance.yahoo.com. josh, do you think at this point the voters especially in our north carolina of the woods will use this storm as an issue as they cast their ballots or not? >> it is certainly going to be a matter of consequence but the real important question here is turnout. how many voters are actually going to come out. what we've
later in the program. >> ohio, colorado, florida, those are the three, i think. >> i bet a lot of global investors are googling the u.s. state map this morning. >>> there is a plan known as the fiscal cliff and automatically triggered $600 billion of tax hikes and spending cuts which would send the u.s. into a recession. >> in this animation, eamon javers has explained the fiscal cliff and gives a couple scenarios for avoiding it. >> the u.s. is barreling towards the fiscal cliff, that's when come on on 2013, mandatory budget cuts and tax increases kick into reduce the deficit by $560 billion. the map drawn by congress leads to automatic cuts next year of $27 billion each in defense and nondefense spending and another $12 billion in cuts to medicare. but here's what lowers the deficit most. higher taxes. all the bush tax cuts go away and a 2% payroll tax comes back. all this coming at once would put the economy in a recession. congress and the president could still take an off-ramp and avoid the cliff, but that would mean tough compromises to raise taxes or lower spending. the other alte
margins in florida, virginia, colorado and ohio. >> governor romney has been having a tough time here in ohio because everybody knows he was against saving the auto industry. you don't scare people just to scare up some votes. >> i can't wait for us to get started. he's hoping we'll settle. americans don't settle. we build, we aspire, we dream, we listen to that voice that says we can do better. >> john harwood will join us with more. and then we'll focus on pot ticks with jack welch. romney campaign adviser senator rob portman and roger altman. so obviously a full lineup to get through all of this. andrew and joe, back over to you. >> let's check on the markets this morning. futures are indicated lower. as i've been pointing out for a while, there is a labor day indicator that jim stack and others have pointed to. and 25 out of 28 times, if the dow jones industrial average was below where it was the friday before labor day, the incumbent loses. and that number 13, 091 and the dow closed at 13,093. so two points above. >> do you think it was sandy? >> i don't know what it was. turned
projected off to the northeast of minneapolis. we'll take you a little bit further south, of course florida one of our swing states. and getting messier by the minute across sections of north florida and you can clearly see that that rainfall will make impacts for many of you across sections of the southeast including georgia and into the carolinas. some showery weather also for those of you in the northwest. in terms of tracking the storm system, the nor'easter that we've been talking about, this has clearly been on everyone's mind and we know how important it is to folks who want to get the latest details. once that storm system which is bringing the rain that we just showed you across the southeast begins to lift upward, we are anticipating those impacts to begin wednesday into thursday. and then thursday into thursday night, we will see some wet and wintry weather continuing, but the latest model runs are trending the system a little bit further offshore. back to you. >> thanks, danielle. it is now a sprint to the white house this morning. investors are waiting for a level of uncertaint
a lead in the real clear politics average of polls. that's north carolina and florida. all the others, iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, the rest of that set of battle ground states are all leading for obama. now, many of them are close, but if mitt romney only carries florida and north carolina among those battleground states, he's only 235 electoral votes. what he has to do is put together in this final sprint victories in states like virginia, like in ohio, like wisconsin, like colorado. that's the way he could get to 270 electoral votes. we'll see whether the two candidates turn out machines produce the way they have hoped they will. and i talked to someone in the romney campaign today who said the polls have simply not captured the republican intensity. we'll find out tomorrow whether that intensity is actually superior to the democrats. >>. >> thank you. candidates battling it out into the final hour, for sure. what is wall street expecting to see from president romney versus candidate romney? will he be harder on china? a lot of questions. >> mike satolli from yahoo! finance
decisive. florida remains a toss-up. clearly not going to make a difference to the overall outcome. 270, that was the number to reesm we knew once we started to get the results from ohio, that it was going in barack obama's way decisively. yes, 303 to barack obama 206 to mitt romney. >> but the race for the white house wasn't the only major contest as control of congress was also up for grabs. the democrats held on to the senate picking up two additional seats in massachusetts, where elizabeth warren beat the incumbent scott brown. in indiana, congressman joe donnelly beat the controversial richard mourdock. congress remains divides republicans maintain their control over the house of representatives. romney's running mate paul ryan won his re-election campaign for his house seat. >> joining us for more analysis is ron freeman. ron, good morning. >> good morning, kelly. >> ron, what's your initial reaction here to the outcome? what's the biggest impact this is going to have on policy? >> i think the biggest impact it will have on policy is we have a president we know well. we know what
to cut spending, but because he was a good governor of florida, he knows how to make a deal. he has also done a lot of work on immigration and is married to a spanish woman. he brings a lot to the table. education, he is a full package. >> i like that immigration part. his father used to call his son the little brown one and i just loved that. he would go to the hispanic latinos rallies and clubs and bodeg a bodegas and rallies. great reporting. thank you very much. now folks, shifting gears. i have another question for you? what company is spending more and more on electric cars even though they have become a huge profit loser? can you believe that? you think this conversation has anything to do with the bail out nation? i do. i think they do. anyway. kissy huggy stay seems to be ending in washington, d.c. where do we go from here? they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. >>> there is good news and t
to "squawk box" this morning, the race in the battleground state of florida lived up to its billing. that presidential contest is still too close to call. but mary thompson is there. and maybe she's not going to call it for us, but can give us more information on where we are. mary? >> reporter: no, i'm not going to call it, andrew. might not be until this afternoon or possibly 9 to 12 days from now before we know the outcome of the florida vote here. the vote count was called off late last night. miami-dade, which is one of the most populous counties here in florida said it would continue the vote count today. hanging in the balance, 29 electoral votes. but, again, at this point may make little difference. this is where we stand as far as the vote count goes with president obama showing a slight lead over governor romney according to the florida division of elections. now, even if the final results are submitted today, if there is a margin of victory of less than .5%, here in florida, that triggers an automatic vote recount. that has to be completed either after nine days after the
